Noting the Parade of backers of a big waterway who have spoken out Over the years including sen. George d. Aiken r vt., Boff said a i m surprised there has been so Little evidence to support a deep draft by James Marlow Washington apr this country has spent Over $500 billion on defense since the War but year after year the outcome of disarmament talks with Russia could be predicted by a child nothing. President Kennedy who had watched those fruitless and expensive years go by finally said on Jan. La 1962 a this nation has the will and the Faith to make a supreme Effort to break the logjam on disarmament and nuclear tests and we will persist until we prevail until the Rule of Law has replaced the Ever dangerous use of Premier Khrushchev followed this up feb. 7, 1962, with a letter to Kennedy and British prime minister Macmillan proposing that the Heads of 18 nations have a Summit meeting to Start off the 1962 disarmament talks. Kennedy and Macmillan turned him Down. Kennedy did t close out the idea of such a Summit altogether. He just said he did t think it worthwhile until there had been some Progress in disarmament talks on a lower level. So there was no Summit meeting but representatives of 17 nations France would take no part a met on and off during the year at Geneva to discuss disarmament. And the result was the same As in All the years before. A ban on nuclear tests would be the sensible first Point in any agreement on disarmament but the United states and Russia gagged on How to achieve that much Accord. So everything broke Down on that. While the two nations might be Able to agree on Banning tests in the atmosphere outer space and underwater since they had instruments to Check cheating in those regions they got stuck on How to ban underground tests. For this the United states wanted an inspection system. The russians said inspection was spying. Even Early in 1963 Kennedy was doubtful there could be any agreement on a test ban. Yet by Midsummer of 1963 agreement was reached. It was done by Compromise. All tests would be banned except underground. This was the most important single agreement Between the United states and Russia since the War. The Kennedy administration considered it a possible first step toward even broader settlements. But there is a Point Here which May have real significance for the future if there is Ever to be agreement on disarmament the nuclear test ban agreement was achieved in a British Amer ican russian meeting in Moscow not at the Geneva conference of 18 nations. Then thursday in the United nations in new York one Day before Kennedy was to address the organization soviet foreign minister Andrei a. Gromyko repeated the 1962 Khrushchev proposal which Kennedy had rejected. He suggested an 18-nation Summit meeting before next june 30 to discuss disarmament. It might seem now Kennedy would be More responsive to the idea of a Summit on disarmament than he was Early in 1962 when he said that before there was a Summit there had to be Progress. The test ban since then was Progress. But while the ban can be con buys Avon Stratford ont. Apr the Stratford shakespearean festival has purchased the Avon theater a former movie House for expansion of its summer Long schedule of activities. Extensive alterations won t Start however until after conclusion of the �?T63 season. Leonard c. Webster president of the festival said that the added facilities would enable an increased diversification of artistic attractions supplementing the Basic schedule of shakespearean plays at the festivals main theater. Side red a big Advance in american soviet relations what has happened in this country Over that agreement chills any Hope for a general disarmament agreement for a Long time. It revealed a deep perhaps in some people a pathological suspicion of russian intentions. The president had to fight for weeks in an Effort to get Senate approval of the test ban although now approval seems sure. Being sure the russians done to cheat on a test ban is simple compared with the anti cheating problems involved in disarmament. Debate in this country Over disarmament would probably be the fiercest and most tortured in history. This is ironic since the United states has protested to the world for years it wants disarmament. Nor is there any certainty the russians want it. Talking about it can be cheap and easy propaganda. Chickens fryers and broilers la.
